Ecological panels with SPIGOLINE PET slats: Solid slats or MDF slats?

By Acoustics, Architecture, Construction, Decoration, News No Comments

This year, Spigogroup has launched its ecological panels with slats (solid wood slats) Spigoline PET, made of ayous and with high thermal and acoustic performance. In these few months we have gained the recognition of acoustics and decoration professionals but, what makes these panels particularly beautiful and elegant? The new SPIGOLINE PET is an acoustic panel with a modern and timeless design that combines solid natural obeche wood slats arranged in parallel with an eco-friendly insulating panel with high thermal and acoustic performance, made of 80% recycled polyester fibres, 100% recyclable and with a low carbon footprint. The key to its success, compared to other options on the market, is precisely the use of solid ayous wood, instead of other options with significant aesthetic differences based on MDF or chipboard. Furthermore, from a technical point of view, using wood slats or solid ayous wood laths offers the important advantage that the finished product is much lighter, weighing less than half the weight of panels with MDF laths finished in melamine, veneered or lacquered. In terms of aesthetic appeal, using solid ayous wood stained in our client’s preferred shade or using MDF or chipboard is decisive for the final appearance of the wall or ceiling on which we want to intervene. Spigoline PET solid wood has the same appearance on all sides of the lath: on the front and also on the sides. This is not the case with MDF or chipboard strips that leave the sides with the chipboard or fibreboard base exposed to view. These pictures clearly show the difference. The solid wood slat panels of ayous wood provide us with: uniformity on all three visible sides: front and sides. uniformity is perceived from any point of view. the ensemble offers order, elegance and decorative harmony. the light behaviour and colour nuances are the same on all three visible surfaces. it can also be stained in different wood shades or RAL/NCS colours. it can also be flame retardant. they are very light and easy to install. In any case, should a project require it, SPIGOLINE PET also offers the possibility of making it with laths on an MDF base support. And if you have any doubts, let us advise you.

Installation of solid wood slat cladding using the GRID system

By Architecture, Construction, Decoration No Comments

Solid wood slat cladding is an elegant and versatile choice for any decorating project. Their natural beauty brings warmth and a high level of distinction to any space, while allowing for multiple design options. That is why they are so widely used in offices, professional practices, hotel receptions, shops, etc. However, another key to their success is the speed and ease of installation. One of the most widespread systems of installing wood slats is the GRID system employed by Spigoline, the solid wood slat cladding division of Spigogroup. Grid System consists of parallel solid wood slats and joined with wood rods. It can be installed both on walls and ceilings:     Ceiling Installation Anchoring system based on positioning of Spigoline grills through T15 profile structure and U clips which act as hooks. The assembly procedure is as follows: When it is installed on a ceiling, square or rectangular wood slats, are crossed by a tube that joins them together in parallel leaving a regular free space between each slat. Then, wood slats are fitted using a U-shaped locking clip that holds them to a T15 rail that has been previously mounted on the ceiling.       Wall Installation Fast and effective anchoring system based on positioning so Spigoline grills though U clips on wooden spacer. The assembly procedure is as follows: When a Grid System of wood slats is applied to walls, an Ω-shaped clamp is screwed onto a wood batten that has been previously fitted on the wall.       If you liked this post about solid wood slat cladding, you may also be interested in:   - Wood ceilings for wineries: tradition and modernity in the great temples of wine - Why is wood one of the best materials for decorating and constructing buildings? - Request a quotation for acoustic panels and wood panelling - Interior design of hotels: the importance of acoustics in hotel reception areas

Wood and school design: the case of the new Lezkairu nursery school

By Architecture, Construction, Decoration, News, Spigogroup wood projects No Comments

Wood and school design come together to create unique educational spaces with welcoming environments that promote a feeling of well-being, both for students and teachers. The choice of wood as a construction material in school architecture not only provides a beautiful and natural aesthetic, but also promotes an environment conducive to learning. According to a study carried out in 2016 by the University of Salford among more than 700 students from seven different Primary Schools in Blackpool, optimal classroom conditions (decoration, lighting, colours, etc.) can influence the teaching-learning process, improving school performance by up to 25%. In addition, wood is a very versatile material and a renewable resource if managed properly. Using certified wood from sustainable sources, like Spigogroup does, is an environmentally responsible choice, as it reduces the carbon footprint of the building process. For this reason, when the new Lezkairu nursery school was designed and built, they thought about the wood solutions that Spigogroup can provide for this type of project. We manufacture and install made-to-measure slatted pine frames and birch plywood door frame cladding, as well as window frames, sills and other trims. We also custom-make the doors, lacquered in white and equipped with magnetic locks, pivoting doors and phenolic cabins for the changing rooms. The result, as you can see, is spectacular.               If you liked this post about wood and school design, you may also be interested in:   - The importance of acoustics in coliving or cohousing - Wood ceilings for wineries: tradition and modernity in the great temples of wine - Why is wood one of the best materials for decorating and constructing buildings? - Educational architecture: the renovation of the Sagasta Secondary School in Logroño has been shortlisted for the BigMat 2023 awards

By Acoustics, Architecture, Construction, Decoration, Spigogroup wood projects No Comments

In the quest for excellence in winemaking and wine preservation, wood ceilings for wineries emerge as an elegant and sustainable choice for modern wineries. Solid wood slat ceilings or ceilings made of acoustic panels have won the hearts of winemakers and wine lovers for several reasons. Firstly, wood is a natural and sustainable material, reflecting a commitment to the environment. In addition, its ability to regulate humidity and temperature is highly valued in these locations, helping to maintain an optimal environment for ageing wine. Aesthetics also play a crucial role, as wood provides a warm feeling, creating a welcoming and authentic ambiance in the winery, whilst linking with the traditional use of wood in the world of wine (barrels, packaging, etc.). Used in acoustic panel format on ceilings and walls, the wood allows for the acoustic conditioning of not only barrel rooms, but also offices, wine cellars and tasting rooms. Bodegas Portia, Bodegas Tobelos, Bodegas Zinio, Bodegas Piérola, Bodegas Barón de Ley, Bodegas Mauro San Román, Bodegas Olarra and Bodegas Vargas are some of the prestigious wineries that have placed their trust in Spigogroup wood cladding and wood ceilings to embellish their wine temples. A sustainable decision that enhances the beauty and charm of any winery, providing the perfect home for the great wines of the land and the good work of the great winemakers of our country.             If you liked this post about wood ceilings for wineries, you may also be interested in:   - Why is wood one of the best materials for decorating and constructing buildings? - Request a quotation for acoustic panels and wood panelling - 3 modern wood ceilings you’ll want for your next project - How to enhance your interior design with slotted wood panels
